NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Saints tight end Josh Hill visited the Chicago Bears according to a report by ESPN. Last week Hill also visited the New York Jets.

Hill is currently a restricted free agent. He was offered a tendered contract to return to the Saints.

It is the lowest tender level, worth $1.67 million and no compensation. This means the Saints have the right to match any offer from another team, but if they lose him they will receive no compensation.

Hill finished last season with 16 receptions and two touchdowns.

The Saints signed and Coby Fleener and Michael Hoomanawanui to multi-year contracts. The team lost veteran tight end Ben Watson to free agency this off season.
